7:14 am
allegiance around the world in places like libya. and even as far as nigeria. it's a real global problem. >> do we have a strategy or do we need a new strategy? >> charlie, i think we need to execute the strategy we've announced which is to accelerate the support we've given with forces and even targets on the front lines. we have to rethink our strategy though, because the threat actually adapting perhaps more quickly than we're able to deal with. >> all right juan zarate thank you for joining us. >> the fbi is searching at this hour for the person who threatened more than half a dozen commercial airline flights. anonymous phone calls made to major airports including jfk, boston and newark. one plane had been escorted by fighter jets. jeff pegues is in washington with more information on this day-long disruption over the holiday. jeff, good morning. >> good morning, law enforcement tells us there were about ten threats on airplanes saying bombs or chemical weapons were on numerous flights.

8:04 am
know that i'm very strong about this issue. you couldn't have all the records of people of america through one single warrant. i think i'm right in line with what the founding fathers would have fought more. i'm proud of the fight. i think there will always be naysayers. >> so it's not about selling books? >> no i think it's really about, to me the bill of rights. and i think it's about the fourth amendment. i think somehow my party gets all caught up in the second amendment which is fine but we don't take the fourth amendment -- neither party ends up protecting the fourth amendment. >> i think it's a really important debate to have because there are certainly privacy concerns. but critics of yourself say you have a pre-9/11 mind-set. i just spoke with loretta lynch where her office has prosecuted pre9/11 case. these wiretaps in in order to
8:05 am
prevent terrorism, why not do that if it would prevent another attack? >> it's interesting, the attorney general came out last week and saying the bulk collection of data hasn't cracked one ways. the president's privacy commission also said the same thing so in practicality, it's not working. but one of the reasons i oppose it is the indiscriminate collection of data indiscriminate searches one of the things has been bios. we've tabbed the offense and looked at individuals without warrants because of their race. we did it to the japanese americans based on race. we also did it to vietnam war protesters. i think it's very important not to let the government do general. they need to be specific and suspicion and have an individual's name on it. >> what they're saying that's an extra step they have to take? >> well, yeah if the constitution, if it's inconvenience, the thing is we obey the constitution because it protects the rights of all individuals. it also keeps bias out of there.
8:06 am
you don't want systemic bias to give government too much power. >> my guess is you think you came come out of this with some sort of compromise? >> maybe. what i'm looking for right now is to see if the other side will negotiate. all i asked for was two amendments at a simple majority vote. i'm not being too unreasonable. i'd like to have a vote on ending the bulk collection. i think we can win that vote. i think the vast majority of the american people say you should be able to collect my phone records if i'm not suspicious. if you don't have probable cause if a judge hasn't signed a warrant, why would you get to look at my phone records? you can tell a person's religion 85% of time from their phone records. who their doctors. sometimes, what medical procedures they're having and you can tell what medicine they're on. this something that the government shouldn't know about you. >> but the administration already supports that they would end bulk collection. >> here's the thing about the president, he's disingenuous about this.
8:07 am
the president started this program through executive order. he could end it anytime. the second court of appeals, the court that's to the supreme court, said it's illegal. what's he waiting zbror he started it on his own, he should stop it. i've asked the president repeatedly, stop the program. >> you know you've come and you attack, your book "staking a stand moving beyond partisan politics" you said quite frankly, the gop successks. you said you want a new gop. what does it have to be? >> i think it has to be with tattoos, without tattoos, overalls business suits, black, white, we need to be a more diverse party. people say that and i'm not saying it enough. but i also think predominantly minority audiences we have ignored over the last 30 years we just gave up. i think going and attending helps. i've talked a lot about criminal
8:08 am
justice reform. i think the war on drugs has disproportionately affected the african and the hispanic population and the poor population, in general. i also talked a little bit about privacy and surveillance and how it affects bias in our history. and foreign policy that i think ought to be more reasonable and less yochoverreaching. >> what would a more reasonable foreign policy be with respect to isis? >> i think we have to stop them. the thing is the past can also be the future. in the sense your behavior in the past -- that's why the question, when people asked jeb bush wow have invaded iraq knowing what you know now, and he fumbled the question. but the reason it's important, what about assad is still there. should we invade and topple assad. about two years ago, i fought against the president and the hawks in that party saying we shouldn't topple assad. >> should we do more to stop isis? >> i think we should do everything that is necessary to stop isis?
8:09 am
>> well what is that? >> what it takes is coalition -- >> more weapons -- >> it could be a variety -- >> advisers on the ground? >> it could be a variety of things. one, you need to look at who are the most significant and most effective fighters those would be the kurds. so i would arm the kurds. i would recognize the kurds as a nation. i would take a lot of the equipment that is rotting in afghanistan, and i would give it directly to the kurds, not to the shiite government. i would tell the shiite government if you don't include sunnis you'll never win this war. shiites won't be able to do it. and americans won't be able to do it. you need to incorporate sunnis into the government in iraq. also a solution between the kurds and the turks. i'd like to see turkish forces. >> and shia militias? >> it's more difficult. the more the iranians getting involved -- i think you need
8:10 am
everybody that's willing to fight against isis. it's difficult, we have tolerated so far the shiite militias and we have tolerated the iranian influence. i'm not sure we could stop it if we wanted to. people need to understand the middle east is complicated and floor easy answers. we need to do what we do to protect american interests. that means our consulate at erbil needs to be defended. and when they stand up and say this is intolerable. >> how are things with you and mitch mcconnell these days? >> i'm not sure he's in counseling yet. >> kentucky bourbon, perhaps. >> we have a very personable relationship. we are friends and we get along fine. we are on opposite sides. but i think we both keep it very civil. i've not had any harsh words with him. or him with me. and i'm still hoping that we can find an arrangement that ends
